A Brief Introduction to Our Trainings
For the sake of your health, there is always a suitable exercise: Wushu, Taiji, and Qigong!
Wushu is an art that pays special attention to stretching muscles, tendons, and joints, not just developing muscles. Therefore, even mature wushu practitioners remain mobile and energetic. The basics of wushu include stretching and training the legs to make tendons soft and elastic, like rubber bands. Another important exercise is the training of static standing postures, which strengthen bones and joints. The third exercise is the coordination of the lower back and pelvic area, making the body flexible and balanced. The fourth exercise is the overall coordination of the hands, eyes, legs, and body, with movements being smooth and symmetrical, making them beautiful and harmonious.
Wushu is best suited for young people, and once you acquire its fundamentals, it is beneficial for engaging in various sports.
Taiji is a smooth and peaceful movement art that is perfect for middle-aged and older people. It requires the relaxation of the entire body and mental focus. It is important to perform movements slowly and smoothly, and strength comes not from effort but from correct technique. Learning Taiji can be challenging and requires constant practice to achieve its wonderful health benefits. Learning Taiji demands patience, humility, respect, and long-term dedication. In the world of Taiji, it is said, "Practice Taiji for ten years without leaving home," which means that practicing Taiji for ten years makes the practitioner's skills worth showing outside their home. This expression emphasizes that a Taiji master achieves true mastery and skills through long-term commitment and practice. Of course, if you already have basic knowledge of wushu, learning Taiji becomes much easier.
Shaolin Qigong "Ba duan jin," which originally was a body correction exercise that Shaolin monks performed after wushu trainings to avoid injuries that may occur due to improper breathing and irregular postures in martial arts training, involves exercises for correcting breathing, balancing the left and right sides, massaging, and self-regulating the spine. The exercises are not particularly complicated and are easy to learn, making them accessible to everyone. Especially beneficial for elderly individuals and those with no prior experience in sports. Practicing Qigong brings many benefits and yields quick results with regular practice.
